Event Description: Join the Southern Appalachians Council in celebrating the Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary on Saturday, June 2 with a symbolic Bridging Ceremony and Party in the Park in beautiful Chattanooga!

We’ll begin at 9 a.m. with Opening Ceremonies in AT&T Field – Lookouts Stadium. At 10 a.m., thousands of Girl Scouts will cross the Walnut Street Bridge to symbolically “bridge”* to the second century of the Girl Scout organization. After that, we’ll gather in Coolidge Park for music, dancing food and tons of games until 2 p.m.

*Please note that this is a symbolic bridging event for the 100th Anniversary and NOT for a troop to advance to the next level of Girl Scouting.

But the fun doesn’t stop then! Join us at AT&T Field when the Chattanooga Lookouts take on the Jackson Generals at 7:15 p.m. on June 2! Girl Scouts and their friends and families will have the opportunity to purchase discounted tickets for the game and sleepover on the field! (You will register for those events separately here: http://www.girlscoutcsa.org/events/358)

All Girl Scouts and their friends and family, as well as Girl Scout alumnae, are invited to attend!
